This customized workshop is designed to make difficult conversations easier and give you the
confidence you need to overcome fear, frustration, and anxiety. These workshops will help you
to communicate confidently, deal with difficult people, and get what you deserve.
Specifically, participants will learn the following:
- How to have critical conversations;
- How to create trust and understanding;
- How to interject managed conflict into high level discussions;
- How to use critical conversations as an opportunity to understand your colleagues,
stakeholders, and clients and create an atmosphere that facilitates open conversation;
- How to avoid critical mistakes that stifle communication and create hostility; and
- How to approach every interaction as a strategic opportunity for future success.
The workshop will end with a negotiation simulation that will give the participants the
opportunity to practice these new skills in a safe environment.
